Are you doing an absolutely amazing job avoiding tooth decay? Are you maybe doing an okay job but you really don’t know? Maybe you feel like you have some idea about the general guidelines for oral health but when it comes specifically to cavity prevention, you worry you’re “out of the loop” in regard to the major suggestions for keeping teeth free of cavities. No matter where you are in terms of your journey toward protecting teeth from bacteria and the damage that they cause, take heart: Your Corona dentist is happy to help you with easy suggestions!

Rinse Sugar And Other Culprits Off Of Teeth ASAP

If you eat sugar (like candy) or something full of carbs (like bread) or something acidic (you see where we’re headed), then you should simply remember to wash them from your smile just as soon as you can. How to do this? It’s so very easy, explains your Corona dentist. The best thing that you can do is to swish with water. Drink water. Rinse and spit it out. Whatever works for you. When you do this, you help to minimize any potential problems, as you remove damaging and tooth decay causing particles from teeth. Then, about a half hour to an hour later, if you can, feel free to brush for even more protection!

Brush And Floss Like A True Champion

Our team reminds patients that the most important action that you can take to prevent tooth decay is to keep up with the most basic of the foundations of oral health protection! It’s not fancy or shocking. It’s just your regular old brushing and flossing. It may seem simple but your Corona dentist reminds you that when you brush and floss according to the daily guidelines set for for all patients, you are removing decay-causing plaque, which leaves teeth clean and healthy. How about that? If you’re worried that you may not be doing it right or that you’re missing plaque when you brush, etc., just ask for some help during your next visit.
